I have a BCS brewery control (more info here: on the Embedded Control Concepts wiki page). I am trying to setup a direct connection through the Ethernet port of a windows 7 laptop. Following all the access instructions on the above wiki doesn't seem to work. I am able to access the ip on a Mac laptop following the instructions. The IP address will not come up after just connecting nor after following the additional instructions. When I run the BCS finder utility it comes back blank. I've also tried to ping the IP address from the command prompt which times out without a reply. I've disabled the wifi adapter and the firewalls on the windows pc as well. Any further guidance?
